WLIR Top 100 of 1987 - song 99 is missing?

Postby MrTambourineMan » Mon Jul 28, 2014 2:14 pm

I have found the WLIR top 100 songs of 1987 list on a few sites, but all are missing the name of the song that came in at #99. I'm hoping to complete the playlist for my favorite year in music. Does anyone recall what song was #99?

Actually at #98 is Pet Shop Boys "Always On My Mind" (which seems to be omitted from your list). Suzanne Vega definitely is at #99.

I have the authentic original studio list!

Awesome! Thank you! I now have a complete 1987 playlist.

Do you have other WLIR/WDRE song lists? So far I've found the Top 100 of 87 and 88, top 200 of the 80s, top 300 at the end of 99, and the list of Screamers and Shrieks. It's been fun tracking down all the songs.
